Census

On Friday we had a visit from the lady who is in charge of collecting the Census information. I went up to the door, as usual, to see who was visiting. Much to my surprise, Lynettea said to her,'I suppose this will be another instance of discrimination against cats!' I wondered if I was hearing voices in my head. SHE must be telepathic. The Census lady laughed in a very inconsiderate manner, which I thought typical of a callous government official and said that pets were not included in the Census. I could see she was staring at me.

I have included a couple of photos of me enjoying the sun on the windowsill. This was before I went out.

We had our census last year, and we didn't get counted either. We agree that it is discrimination.

Diamond, it's clear you have trained Lynettea quite well for her to be able to channel your thoughts like that. Shame on the census people for not including animals in the census. And that census lady laughing? Inexcusable.

We love the pictures of you in the windowsill. You look more handsome than ever.

I would put my paw on the census forms and sign them. That would make it clear. :)
